Let's just get this out of the way: A plain white T-shirt is never going to go out of style. Like, ever. Though favored fit and fabric may shapeshift as the seasons roll by, it's undeniably an eternal classic—so could it be that a new contender is competing for first place?
They're not much different, but consider the fitted white tank top. An antithesis of the recent oversized logo tee influx, it's basic to the highest degree and perhaps a tad bit dated (think those velour Juicy Couture sweats from 2004)...up 'til now. A single scroll through Instagram reveals the fashion crowd beginning to pair the little white tank with pretty much everything; take note that the au courant silhouette appears to be thin, tight, and with a low scooped neck.
We're intrigued, too. Check out how 10 of the 'gram's chicest are styling theirs!
1. Count on Kim Jones to be one of the earliest examples we've seen. A slouchy gray suit will do the trick!
2. Jess Wilson's halter version may not have the cleavage exposure we mentioned earlier, but it is see-through enough to flash a bra. Liking!
3. Trendy distressed denims have met their match made in heaven. Introductions by Mari Jasmine.
4. The definition of updated California cool: Aimee Song lounging around in pristine all-white. Break the streak with a black leather belt and trendy puka shell deets!
5. Hit the streets à la Sam Richelle by tying up the ends of your tank and throwing on some baggy sweats.
6. Our resident expert on jean-eology is Liz Uy. Don't be afraid to double up!
7. So sleek, it almost hurts. Martine Cajucom tucks her Gil Rodriguez maillot into Acne Studios leggings and pulls it off like only she can.
8. You could also go for a one-shouldered option. Nadine Lustre's real supportive! Gotta love that Chanel chain accent.
9. The brighter, the better! Wide-leg trousers in an eye-popping fuchsia get our unanimous yeses.
10. The LWT (yep, we totally just abbreviated 'little white tank') happens to be a great buffer or blank canvas for layering prints. Margaret Zhang knows best.
